Daily itinerary

Day 1

Arrival to Iceland

Welcome to the Land of Ice and Fire, and the beginning of your 8-day winter workshop where you'll heighten your skills as a landscape and nature photographer. You will be arriving at Keflavík International Airport, on the Reykjanes Peninsula, from which you will take a bus to Iceland’s capital city, Reykjavík.

Once you arrive, you are free to check in, unpack...

Day 2

The South Coast

Today, your adventure really begins. You will be picked up from your hotel accommodation in Reykjavík and transported along the picturesque South Coast in a specialized, spacious bus. Almost immediately, you will recognise just why this route is one of Iceland’s most popular sightseeing strips, with its majestic waterfalls, jagged coasts and far-off mountain...

Day 3

Vatnajokull National Park I

In the morning, you will continue your journey along the South Coast toward Vatnajökull National Park, passing a variety of captivating landscapes as you do so. Upon arrival, you will find an environment quite unlike that of anywhere else in the country; in fact, Vatnajökull National Park appears as though it was pulled straight from the pages of fantasy!

Day 4

Vatnajokull National Park II

You will be up in early in the morning in order to take part in a sunrise shoot back at Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon and Diamond Beach. The opportunity to photograph this area in the morning light is one that should be relished; both areas take on an ethereal glow that is perfectly suited to making great picture.

Today’s main focus, however, is photographing ic...

Day 5

Vatnajokull National Park III

Once again, you will head down to Diamond Beach to take more photographs of the ice, waves and shoreline in the orange morning light.

After your morning shoot is over, you will continue eastward toward the Stokknes Peninsula, home to the famed Vestrahorn. Known as “The Batman Mountain” due to its towering, pointed peaks, Vestrahorn is among the most popular p...

Day 6

Skaftafell Nature Reserve and Vik

The sixth day of your tour will be focused on Skaftafell Nature Reserve, an area of wild beauty. Skaftafell was once a national park in its own right before it was absorbed by the boundaries of Vatnajökull National Park in 2008.

The majority of the day will be spent photographing different areas of the reserve. Your subject areas will include glacial tongues,...

Day 7

The Golden Circle

The Golden Circle is, arguably, Iceland’s most popular visitor's trail. It is comprised of three essential attractions; Þingvellir National Park, Haukadalur Geothermal Valley and Gullfoss Waterfall.

Þingvellir is one of Iceland’s UNESCO World Heritage sites, a title it boasts for a number of reasons. First, it is one of the only places on the planet where it...

Day 8

Departure Day
